    Hey all,

    I just wanted to introduce myself. My Name is Justin, Im 26, and I have been a machinist/welder for 10 years. Ive been tooling up for the last year with intentions of running my own motorcycle modification/performance company with a heavy slant towards dirt bikes and motocross racing in general. Ive worked at a sheet metal fabrication shop specializing in commercial HVAC and refrigeration for the last 8 or so years.

    My Home Shop consists of:

    Grizzly G0602 10x22 Lathe
    Foremost machinery Mill/Drill
    Everlast 200p Tig Welder
    Everlast 50 amp Plasma Cutter
    Century 160 amp Mig welder
    Harbor Freight Blasting cabinent w/pressure pot
    Harbor Freight 12 ton shop press
    Harbor Freight 20 gallon Solvent tank
    Associated tooling
    And lots of little stuff not worth mentioning...

    Best of all, its all paid for!

    I remember looking through the Home shop Machinist Mags back in high school in metal shop and when I came across this forum, I loved every bit of it.

    Needless to say, Im glad to to be a part of this forum!

            Being ROAD KILL on the Information Super Highway and Electronically Challenged really SUCKS!!

            Every problem can be solved through the proper application of explosives, duct tape, teflon, WD-40, or any combo of the aforementioned items.

                              Wow, nice collection of tools. Sounds like your priorities are right. I loved dirt bikes until I got a 600 cc Honda. That bike tried to kill me a few times. I think it was possessed. After becoming friends with the local ER doctors two times, i gave it up.
                              Good luck with you new plans and welcome aboard!
